Would I get better cooling on my Corsair Carbide Air 540 if I installed six 120mm fans or five 140mm fans? Thanks.

The 140s have a CFM of 68. The 120s have a CFM of 62. Is there any other information you need to answer?

68*5 vs 62*6, so 6x120mm have higher air flow.

but, larger fan usually are quieter.

So they're close (only like 30)? Because I would save like $40 if I got the 140mms. Is that extra 30CFM worth $40?
